Designers used dark natural tones to contrast with the rough, neutral stucco siding of this French country home. Elegant sliding doors open onto the patio, which is perfect for taking in views of the San Diego Bay.
The main portion of this French country home and the fence enclosing the courtyard are built from natural stone. The exterior of the private spaces of the home are clad in a contrasting stucco, drawing a visual boundary between public and private spaces, even from the exterior of the home.
A length of shrubs surround the front of this French country home, helping the residence feel private and peaceful. Where a well-manicured lawn showcases the charming exterior, tall trees draw the eye to the second level.
The farmhouse-inspired kitchen has a large irregular-shaped island with barstool seating at one end. Rustic stone, the same used on the house's exterior, creates a beautiful focal wall around the wood-fire oven.
This French Country Estate is grand yet inviting. With over 5000 square feet of living space this home is the perfect retreat for a growing family. This home’s exterior stucco finish and native stone wainscot come together to beautify the structure. Wrought iron balconies, custom wood shutters and window planter boxes, copper spires, and subtle archways compliment the design.
This cozy outdoor living room features brown wicker furnishings with plush cream cushions. A floral rug and patterned throw pillows echo the blue from the French doors. Sage green siding inside the porch and red siding from the exterior of the home contribute more color and help the space feel inviting.
